I am a medieval art historian working mainly on medieval biblical pictorial narratives in the Latin West, Latin and Hebrew illuminated manuscripts, Biblical iconography and exegesis, medieval manuscript illumination. My Ph.D. dissertation at the Art History Department of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem dealt with the eleventh-century Ripoll and Roda Bibles, from Catalonia. From 1994 until 2009, I have been teaching courses on Medieval Art at the Art History Department of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Since August 2009 I am the Chief Curator of the Italian Jewish Museum in Jerusalem, and Senior Research Fellow at the Art History Department of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. For the year 2010-11 I am a visiting member of the Research Group ‘The Exegetic Imagination’ at the Scholion Interdisciplinary Research Center in Jewish Studies, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
